Creating a Home School Classroom in Your Insulated Home Extension - 06 March, 2012
- If you can, paint the walls a bright colour which will make the space inviting and lively. For example, yellow is a common colour in classrooms as it is said to stimulate creativity and brighten the mood.
- Create an ideal space for your children to do homework. This should be a desk or a table which is at a comfortable level for writing. It should have a chair with back support which is at the appropriate height and task lighting such as a lamp to illuminate their work.
- It is easy for a home school classroom to get messy, especially with all of the pens, pencils, art supplies and more that you will be using. You can add an organization system to your insulated home extension, such as a bookcase, cabinets or drawers which will help you keep track of the clutter.
- Every home school classroom should have a well-stocked library of educational and entertaining books. Make sure that your insulated home extension has everything from novels to non-fiction in a wide variety of subjects. It is also a good idea to have reference books such as a dictionary and a thesaurus.
- What is on the walls of your insulated home extension? Why leave them bare when you can decorate them with educational and inspiring posters, such as maps of the world, photos of animals and more. You can also hang reference materials on the wall, such as a poster of the periodic table of the elements or one with the names of the planets. You can order these types of educational posters online.
